TSG65 A complicated drinking game...

I have a confession to make... when I saw today's challenge at There She Goes I almost died of fright.  Today's challenge is all about making an easel card - something I've never done.  I always thought they looked so pretty when people made them but for some reason, I thought they were incredibly hard to make... Well a trip to SCS to get the instructions, I pulled out the new set from There She Goes called "A Drink a Day" - how fitting!!! To be honest, an easel card is one of the easiest cards I've made if you think about the different types of funky cards you can make.  Easy peasy I tell ya!!!  I have a feeling that you will be seeing more of these in the future. 

For the layout of this card, I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC79) for this week.  It lent itself to a simple, clean design for a card. I've used some My Mind's Eye DP as my inspiration to draw the colors from.  The images have been stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and then embossed with clear detail embossing powder. I then watercolored the drinks with both SU and Tombow Markers. Can you believe that this was the first time I've dragged out my SU markers in well over a year??? Can you imagine the dust on them?  Hehehe... Just kidding - no dust.

Hope you like it! See you soon!
